    Lightbulb High ISO ... let's lose the noise

    Came across an interesting posting that seems to improve High-ISO noise issues in the α700. I'm not talking about ISO-1600 ... heh ... how about ISO-3200?

    Try these out, for size:

    Under Creative Style = 'standard' ... but ... not your basic "Standard" but go down a few more selections and find the "switchable" '1 Standard'. You can decide on whatever you want witgh this, but out "Standard" in the there with the up/down arrow.

    Under it, set your Saturation +1, Sharpness +2, Brightness -2, Zone matching -1;
    DRO= DR+;
    high ISO NR = 'high'
    Save the whole shooting match under custom memory index "MR3"

    This is your new low light shooting recall.

    It should provide some impressive looking images under low light conditions (in this case, w/ Tungsten WB).

    For further explanation , use this DPR link

    Here the original test image

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
